Moringa according to the life stage of dogs
Do you know about Moringa? At Green Paws, we know it like the back of our hand! Our delicious smoked banana bites, as well as the grilled coconut ones, are actually made from this superfood which comes from a tropical plant with many health benefits for both dogs and humans.
We have been using the powdered dried leaf as well as the ground seed to make our Green Paws from the very beginning. With more than 90 nutrients, 46 antioxidants and 36 components with anti-inflammatory properties, organic dried Moringa leaves contain the majority of minerals and nutrients essential to your pet's health, regardless of age.
In this article, we demystify Moringa for you and explain everything you need to know about the benefits of this superfood.
The growing dog
The puppy needs all the nutrients necessary for its growth, and must therefore consume more than the adult dog. Before the growth spurt, it is recommended not to give too much protein and to avoid excess calcium since too much can be toxic. So, to properly complete his meals, it is essential to give him other supplements such as minerals and vitamins.
Luckily, our Green Paws provide your pup with the perfect amount of all these nutrients! Containing 12 times more vitamin C than oranges, our bites help protect skin, provide a shiny, healthy coat throughout growth, promote natural collagen production, and help reduce inflammation and breakouts.
The adult dog
For the adult dog, the diet varies according to his profile. For example, a neutered dog tends to have a reduced metabolic rate and therefore needs fewer calories. On the other hand, a more active or smaller dog will require more calories. As for large breed dogs, they have a faster aging process and it is therefore important to pay particular attention to their joints.
Rich in omega-3, our Moringa-based Green Paws help reduce joint inflammation by eliminating inflammatory enzymes and strengthening the ligaments that act on the collagen structure. These bites are therefore very suitable for dogs of large breeds, but also for smaller ones, since they provide a variety of nutrients necessary for all types of size.
The senior dog
As dogs age, their metabolism gets slower and slower so you have to adjust what you feed them. The senior dog needs good protein, enough fiber and an adequate mineral content. It is therefore important to continue to give our Moringa bites to older dogs, as they contain 9 times more protein than yogurt, 17 times more calcium than milk and 25 times more iron than spinach.
Thanks to these different nutrients, your dog will maintain good oral health and maintain a strong immune system. Also, the high concentration of antioxidants in Moringa fight against free radicals that damage metabolism and prevent premature aging of cells. One Green Paw a day will help senior dogs stay healthy and feel great!
Whatever the age or profile of your dog, our moringa bites will be more than beneficial for his health. A Green Paw a day can make a big difference!
